Match Previews

Preview: Port Vale v Fleetwood Town

29 July 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town are set to face Port Vale in the opening fixture of the 2022/23 Sky Bet League One campaign, and we have all you need to know ahead of the 3pm kick-off in our match preview.

Fixture: Port Vale v Fleetwood Town

Competition: Sky Bet League One

Date: Saturday 30 July 2022

Kick-off: 15:00

Venue: Vale Park, Hamil Rd, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, ST6 1AW


After a successful pre-season, Town head into the new season with three wins from the last three pre-season matches, with wins over FC Halifax Town, Dundee United and Barrow AFC.

Joe Garner and Promise Omochere scored in the 2-1 victory over National League side at Poolfoot Farm, with the Cod Army coming from a goal behind to beat the Shaymen.

With seven new signings this summer, Fleetwood have been busy in the transfer window. Promise Omochere was the latest signing, after penning a three-year-deal from League of Ireland side, Bohemians. New head coach, Scott Brown has assembled a side ready to take on newly-promoted, Port Vale this weekend – after their victory in London earlier this year.

The Sky Bet League One side have had a very good pre-season too. Their last friendly match was against League Two side, Rochdale, with Vale coming out 3-2 winners after 90 minutes. Jamie Proctor's brace and a strike from Funso Ojo saw them come from 2-0 down against Rochdale to win at the Crown Oil Arena.

Vale have been active in the transfer window just like their opponents today. Rory Holden is the latest recruit. The 24-year-old has joined from Walsall – where he worked with currently boss Darrell Clarke.

Thierry Small, Will Forrester and Derek Agyakwa have also signed on the dotted line this week ahead of the clash against Fleetwood Town.



“The first game of the season is huge for us, we are all looking forward to it. Competition is great for every single person in this squad and we know that there’s always going to be that competition for places, which is what both the players and us as coaching staff expect as well.

“We are going to take it one game at a time this season and Port Vale is a huge game for us. They’re going to play 3-5-2 and are a direct and good team who have just come up from League Two.

“We’ve watched quite a lot of their games recently and have noticed that they are full of energy and like to put a lot of balls in the box, and are fully capable of scoring some great goals as well.

Match Reports

Report: Town fall to opening day defeat to Port Vale

30 July 2022

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat to Port Vale on the opening day of the Sky Bet League One season on Saturday afternoon.

Dan Batty opened the scoring early on, but two goals within three minutes from the hosts put the game in the hosts' favour. Even though Town created chances throughout the game after conceding, it wasn’t meant to be as it ended in a loss.

It was Town who started out the better side as they broke the deadlock just seven minutes into the clash. New signing Promise Omochere picked up the ball in the Vale box and crossed to Batty – our top scorer in pre-season – who volleyed the ball home from 12-yards.

The home side then came into the clash as Mal Benning played a deep free-kick towards Ben Garrity on the edge of the box, whose shot went wide of the near post, not troubling Jay Lynch.

Fleetwood worked the ball down the other end, and played a lobbed through ball for Paddy Lane to run onto. He then found the feet of goal scorer Batty, but Aiden Stone stopped his near post effort.

A quickfire brace from the Valiants changed the game around the half-hour mark as defenders Smith and Hall both found the net from different set-pieces, meaning they would take the lead in the clash before the half.

It was a close-fought second half with a lack of chances for both sides. A worrying part of the early action in the second period was when Omochere went down holding his face after a collision with Smith – he had to be brought off after the challenge.

With 15 minutes to go, substitute Ellis Harrison came close to levelling up the score line as he managed to get on the end of a corner kick from Danny Andrew, but his effort from 16-yards was deflected away from goal by a Vale defender.

The last chance of the game fell to the hosts as Rory Holden took a free-kick from range for the Valiants, which was blocked by Joe Garner’s face, which seemed to do some damage as he stayed on the ground. Luckily, he was back up and playing soon after.

Vale XI: Stone (GK), Cass (Forrester 80’), Hall, Smith (C), Worrall, Garrity, Benning (Hussey 90+5'), Proctor, Ojo, Charsley (Conlon 90+5'), McDermott (Holden 66’).

Unused subs: Jones, Walker, Small.

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Andrew, Wiredu (G.Garner 60’), Morris (Harrison 60’), Vela (C), Lane (Hayes 84’), Holgate (Earl 84’), Omochere (J.Garner 70’), Nsiala, Batty, Johnston.

Unused subs: Cairns (GK), Baggley.
